    How can I get a product dimension to sort by a product number (dimension) in an area chart

    Stephen Hellyar

      Getting back to Tableau after a long hiatus. 


      I forgot how to do something simple.  I have a dimension called "products" with 5-year sales projections.   Each product has a simple Product Line # 1-N (i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...).  It is currently a Dimension defined as a string.  It is not used as a #.


      I have an area chart.   Years is on the Column shelf, Sales is on the Rows shelf.   Product is on Detail and Color.


      How can I get Product to sort 1-N (1, 2, 3, 4...) by the its Line #?
